Comments:

* I did 11 reps on the last set which was frustrating for me since 11 reps with 205 lbs works out to be the same 1 rep max PR as 12 reps with 200 lbs using a 1 rep max calculator.

** I did 12 reps on the last set but it felt like I could have done 15. I am not sure why I am so strong in this exercise but at the same time am having trouble increasing my bench press strength.
